University of Southern Mississippi Mascot

The University of Southern Mississippi is located in the medium sized city of Hattiesburg, Mississippi. The university is commonly referred to as the Southern Miss Golden Eagles. The Golden Eagles is the current mascot and nickname of the University, but this was not always the case.

The school, founded in 1910, has a history of many different nicknames throughout its rich history. The first nickname was the Tigers. The Tigers is a common nickname in the southern part of the United States where neighboring schools Auburn (located in Alabama) and LSU (located in Louisiana) also have the common nickname and mascot of the Tigers.

Following the initial Tigers nickname the University of Southern Mississippi switched to the very unique nickname Normalites (derived from the early name for the university – Mississippi Normal College). From there the nickname changed several times as the school was represented with the names Yellow Jackets, Confederates, and Southerners in that order. It was an alumni/student vote in 1972 that selected the Golden Eagles name that is still used to this day.

The students and faculty at the university have gone as far as to give the golden eagle mascot a proper first and last name. It is not uncommon for colleges to give their mascots names, examples include: the University of Florida with Albert the Alligator and Michigan State with their Spartan mascot named Sparty. In the case of Southern Miss the full name of their mascot is Seymour d’Campus. The name Seymour d’Campus is a play on words intended to be read as “see more of the campus.” The modern name was influenced by the 1984 World’s Fair mascot by a similar name: Seymour d’Fair. The resourceful students and faculty of Southern Miss adapted the World’s Fair mascot name to suit their own agenda.

It should come as no surprise that Seymour attends Southern Mississippi sporting events year round and frequently makes appearances at university and community events. In addition to public appearances Seymour the Golden Eagle can often be found partaking in television promotions for local businesses. Over the last ten years Seymour has competed in numerous national mascot competitions that are designed to select America’s favorite collegiate mascots. During the first ten years of the twenty first century Seymour the Golden Eagle made numerous appearances in the top twenty results and even occasionally finished in the top ten with his best showing being a 7th place finish in the 2002 UCA Mascot National competition.

The most famous athlete that Seymour the Golden Eagle cheered on is the long time quarterback of the Green Bay Packers and current Minnesota Viking Brett Favre.…

Writing a Child Story: 8 Elements to Consider

While writing an entertaining child story is obviously more art than science, most successful child stories pay attention to the following 8 elements.

#1: Theme

A good child story has an underlying theme. The underlying theme of “Peter and the Wolf,” for example, is “don’t tell lies” or “be honest.” The underlying theme of “The Sneetches” by Dr. Seuss is “don’t be racist” or “all (Sneetches) are created equal.” A theme can be the moral of the story, or an insight or viewpoint that the story conveys. Common themes are courage, love, perseverance, friendship, etc.

As an underlying theme, the theme usually emerges subtly as the story unfolds. A direct statement of the theme usually comes across as preachy and uninteresting. Remember what your high school English teacher used to say: “show, don’t tell!”

Also, keep your theme positive and constructive. Your story may be sad, but make sure it’s not negative, cynical or depressing!

#2: Plot and Pace

Plot is what happens in a story. Pace is the speed at which the story develops.

Generally, a simple chronological unfolding of events works best for storybooks (no flashbacks or complicated jumping around in time).

The plot usually revolves around a dominant problem or conflict which the main character must resolve. The problem or conflict may be with another character, with circumstances or even internal to the main character (e.g. overcoming their own fears).

The plot usually proceeds through phases: beginning of the conflict, initial success or difficulties, further difficulties or reversals, final resolution or victory, and outcome. As the story progresses through these phases the conflict becomes more intense and increases the dramatic tension, until it the story climaxes and the conflict is resolved.

For the most part, the main character succeeds or fails through his or her own efforts. In fact, it is through this process that the character learns or grows, and this lesson or growth typically conveys the theme.

TIP: Create a thumbnail layout/mockup of your text. This way you’ll be able to better judge how your story unfolds and its optimal pacing.

Proper pacing of your story is essential. Too slow and the reader/listener will lose interest, too fast and they won’t have time to get excited or they will miss important details.

The pace in storybooks should be fairly brisk without “rushing.” Avoid lengthy introductions or descriptions of the setting. Start the action immediately from the beginning and bring the story promptly to a close at the end.

Even more so than adults, children appreciate action. So, keep the pace of your story fairly quick by using action and unfolding events. Don’t get bogged down in lengthy descriptions or reflections. Again, “show, don’t tell!”

#3: Narrative Voice and Point of View

Narrative voice is the viewpoint from which the story is told. Most stories are told either in the “first person” (from the perspective of “I”, “I did this”) or “third person” (from the perspective of “They”, “They did that”). If you choose to write …

A Career in Healthcare Management – A Day in the Life of a Practice Administrator

Your day might not be anything like what I’ve described below, but the point of the post is to suggest that most administrators put out fires all day long and juggle meetings, email, and employee and physician issues and have very little time for planning and thinking. Depending on how long you’ve been with your current group, how well trained your staff are, and how many supervisors you have working with you, you might have a much easier day than described below, or a much harder one!

7:00 – 8:00 a.m.

An employee calls you at home before 7 a.m. to say they will not be in. You check the schedule to see how staff can be re-arranged to cover all needs.

8:00 – 9:00 a.m.

As you arrive, two employees have been waiting for you and have things to discuss with you – one wants to reschedule her vacation for the third time and the other wants information on FMLA (Family Medical Leave Act.) You tell the first you’ll look at the schedule and get back to her and hand the second a packet of info on FMLA to review.

You check your schedule and note that Nurse’s Day is coming up soon and you need to make plans to celebrate their day.

You check your email and see that your state listserv has some interesting information that you forward to your billing manager, asking her to look into the issue and tell you if it applies to your practice.

9:00 – 11:00 a.m.

You handle a patient complaint. You round on everyone in the practice, checking to make sure everyone has what they need and checking on their weekends. On your way back to your office, a nurse mentions that the exam rooms are not being cleaned as thoroughly as they should be; you make a mental note to speak with the cleaning company.

Your 9:30 a.m. meeting is with a broker who has some quotes to share with you in anticipation of your June 30 benefits year-end. Your senior physician has asked that the group consider cutting benefits this year if health insurance rates go up again.

You listen to several voice mail messages that came in while you were meeting with the benefits broker. The first is your EMR project manager calling to say your go-live date might need to be changed; please call him back. Another is a payer asking to schedule a chart audit sometime in the next three weeks.

11:00 – 12:00 p.m.

A physician lets you know that she’s using the last of the Rx pads – could you order some more ASAP?

It is payroll week and you spend most of the hour finishing the payroll and checking with the four employees whose payroll record is missing a punch. You send the payroll file out and move money into the payroll account, checking the bank balance and noting the Electronic Funds Transfer that came in since you checked it on Friday.…

Funding Your Bachelor Degree Education

For the average working adult, going back to school can be one of the largest investments he will make in his life. But if you have some time before you pursue your studies, instead of applying for a bank loan, why not let time and capital work for you. Even if you plan to pursue a bachelor degree in the near future, say, in three years more, you can still save for it.

First of all, you need to have a target amount. Usually, the course fees represent a large portion of the cost. Other costs are examination fees and living expenses for those who come from other towns.

Some students may choose to study full time so that they can focus on their studies. In this case, if your employer doesn’t give you paid time off to do your studies, your budget will increase significantly, as you now have to account for your entire living expenses. In addition to that, you’ll still have to continue paying for things like insurance, car, mortgage, credit card as well as utility bills.

However, expenses can be higher if the course is done part time, as the person has less time to devote to his studies. As a result, he may have to prolong the program or even have to re-sit some papers, which means additional examination fees.

How much time you have to put aside the money depends on when you plan on taking up the program. When is the ideal time to start? To get more out of a bachelor degree, it would be good to have real world working experience of two to three years, on which to reflect upon when you’re doing the units.

At least three years of working experience would be good but you shouldn’t wait too long as the motivation level will drop. Even if you commence your studies in three years, you don’t have to pay the money in one lump sum. You can save through the study period as well which, gives you more time to accumulate funds.

Many education centers and colleges have worked out interest free schemes that you can use to your benefit. You can let your money work for you while you use the interest free payment option.

There is also an option for students to pay their fees in the monthly payments over the period of study and if the amount is paid in a lump sum, students are given a rebate. Another option is a scheme in collaboration with a bank, where students pay few hundred dollars at the start of the program and nothing else for two years. Thereafter, they have the option to repay in installments upon completing their studies.

Finally, you need to work backwards; given the number of years, inflation rate and a projected rate of return to come up with how much you need to put aside regularly. However, inflation may not have a large impact if your study period is short.

Top Schools for Medical Transcription Students

Medical transcriptionists, also referred to as medical terminology stenographers, transcribe verbal records created by doctors and other health care professionals. Once transcribed, these records are used for administrative purposes and to create medical reports.

Why Her Voice May Signal the Best Time to Conceive – TTC 101

Trying to have a baby is an important time between couples. The decision to have children is only the beginning, and in some cases, the ability get conceive may take several months, or even longer.

Tips on conceiving a child have been around for thousands of years and have spanned across all cultures. Science can also help in providing some of those tools that can be used to determine the best time to try for a new baby.

A study in done in October of 2008 at University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) may lend credence that women have a tendency to give off signals when their bodies are most fertile. For couples who are “Trying to Conceive”, this may be another tool to use to assist in starting a family.

The study was run with about 70 women that averaged about 20 years of age, with normal cycles and not currently using birth control. Researchers conducted tests to see if hormone changes affected the participant’s voices during their most fertile times of the month.

Researchers recorded each subject during the course of the month as a baseline for comparison and sampling. Each subject was to speak the following sentence “Hi, I’m a student at UCLA” during their peak and low end of their fertility cycles.

When these recordings were compared, researchers found a distinct difference in the level of pitch at the peak of their fertility cycle which was about 48 hours prior to ovulation. Researchers hypothesized that the change in hormones during that time might account for the change in their voices.

In summary, scientists are continually looking at ways to help couples in their quest to start a family. Having children can be a frustrating experience if the couple is ready, but the process does not produce expected results quickly enough. Conceiving tips like these may help couples in trying to get pregnant naturally.…

Fabric Painting As A Career

Fabric painting is not the most conventional of careers to choose from; in fact most would relegate it to the hobbies listing, an obscure craft. Some would ask, “Who would want to spend their career with fabric paint?” But think about it; if the career were not a significant one, we would all be sitting on bland, colorless and design free furniture, we would probably all be dressed up in flour sacks and staring at blank walls. Of course that’s a slight exaggeration, but you get the point, I’m sure.

As a career fabric painter, you have the opportunity to add creative and sometimes colorful value to the world we live in. Although fabric painting can be a laborious pursuit it has become thousands of times easier to reproduce fabric painting on numerous mediums. With the advent of digital art, reproduction artwork can be placed on cups, plates, textiles, shoes, wood and more.

The prospects are actually quite exciting when you think about it. Rather than designers buying that blase fabric for their fashion accessories project, you can now offer them custom fabrics, specially created for their specific use; something unique to their collection. Designers can now say bye, bye to boring; and hello to happy. Their clients will love you for it.

Artists can now create their masterpieces and have them duplicated for short run reproduction just as easy as or perhaps easier than it would have been to process the art through the traditional fabric mills. This is great but there are still some major manufacturing companies that hire artists to create hand painted designs for their new collections. They then take the artists designs and produce them on various types of fabrics.

One career that is easily integrated and is an offshoot of fabric painting is, screen printing, which in itself is a vast field. Traditionally, screen printing has been viewed as the answer to producing tee shirts for schools and casual wear. Today the screen printing industry is booming as artists are getting even more creative and adding flair to their designs.

The sizes of screens have grown from a little bitty square on the front of your shirt to a large format screen designed for all over tee shirt design. Still there are others who use this screen printing method to create custom yardage for sale and for creating their own line of goods.

Such artwork was initially painted on fabric and later printed on garments for toddlers and adults alike. Just as the original was embellished with studs, stones, sequins and glitter, so too are the creations of the silk screen artist. The beauty of course is once the original design has been developed on fabric and screens created, the design can be produced in unlimited colors, sizes and of course quantities.

On the flip side of the screen printing issue are the embellishers who are also fabric painters in their own right. These artists take a generally basic design and customize it, giving …

Free Fake MCSE Certificates

The MCSE certification is a hard-earned credential of the information technology specialist. Seven exams are passed to achieve this certification and there were many hours spent in the preparation for these exams. Colleges and universities offer preparatory courses to help you in study for the 70-290 exam. For those who cannot attend local class. there are university courses offered online to get the information needed to prepare for the exam. Books and other materials are sold to complement these internet courses.

To pass the 7-290 exam, there are seven separate tests that must be successfully passed. The preparation for this series of exams can be quite intense. Some test candidates attend camps where the immersion in the subject matter is more thorough than one can achieve in colleges or universities. In addition to the lectures and group discussions in class, there are books these programs provide to help the testing candidates be ready for the exam.

The participants in these camps or university programs are system engineers, system administrators or anyone in the information and technology department who will be responsible for keeping the internal networks secure and running smoothly.

The certified professional with the genuine MCSE certification will have the knowledge and experience gained from books, classes, college and or university coursework and real-world experience to successfully tackle all business computing needs, which can be quite diverse. Everything ranging from the individual workstation maintenance to the management of disaster recovery.

There have been some articles and postings that advertise “Free Fake MCSE Certificates”. The danger in these certificates is that the holder of the bogus MCSE is not a person who has necessarily read the books or attended the camps. They may not have spent the requisite time in college or university programs and they have a very large responsibility in the infrastructure management position to keep the corporation or business on a reliable and secure system. If a holder of a counterfeit MCSE Certificate is in a position of such vital importance, it threatens the well-being of that entire company. The genuine certified individual has passed the 7-290 exams, has the knowledge to support the varied and ever-changing needs of the Microsoft Windows 2003 server business environment, and it is well worth checking the credentials of all information technology professionals who claim to hold the MCSE.

Only by reading the books, passing the genuine 7-290 and having the knowledge gleaned from university and college classes or accredited camps can a person genuinely shoulder the responsibility of the certified Microsoft professional.…
